Day 18 – Memphis

So for this day – I actually wrote a whole blog on my phone and when I exited out of it, it didn’t get saved!!! You know when you’re so angry you’re like “F*** this!!” and leave it. Well that’s what I’ve done with Day 18. I will however do a quick re-cap of my…

Day 17 – Dallas 2 (Texas)

I had a bit of a sleep in on Friday morning. A lot of people on my Contiki went to the JFK museum because they were doing the Dallas Cowboy Stadium Tour at 2pm so wanted to get it over and done with earlier. As I wasn’t, I went at 11.30am with a few other…

Day 16 – Dallas (Texas)

I think everyone was feeling pretty seedy the next morning on the way to Dallas. The bus ride took about 4 hours to get there with our usual stop offs for food and snacks etc and arriving in Dallas in the afternoon. So what I know about the city of Dallas…It’s known for it’s historical importance…

Day 15 – Amarillo feat. Santa Fe (New Mexico)

This morning I got a bit of a sleep in. We had the optional activity of doing a hot air balloon ride in Albuquerque but I was too scared/too poor to do it haha. Those people who were doing it had to be at the bus by 6.20am so I’m glad it wasn’t me! 😴😴When…

Day 14 – Albuquerque

Tuesday: Waking up the next morning in Durango, I got up to be on the bus by 9.30am to go river rafting! A few of us from Contiki went rafting and the rest went horse riding. (You got to choose what one you wanted to do) We were all pretty hungover from last night and the…

Day 13 – Durango feat. Monument Valley

Today we left the Grand Canyon nice and early just before 8am to head to Durango. (Check out the map below for where I’m at) It was a pretty long day of driving and stopping as we stopped off in Monument Valley and took lots of pictures. If no one knows where Monument Valley is, it’s…

Day 12 – Grand Canyon

It’s my birthday today!! I am now a big 24 year old 😆🎉🎉 However my birthday day didn’t start off very well… I had put my name down on the Contiki Activities List to go on a 45 minute Helicopter Tour that morning with everyone else. We were all told to meet on the bus at 7am…

Day 11 – Grand Canyon

I’m having such difficulty uploading these blogs because the Wi fi in the Grand Canyon is horrible. When they do eventually upload there’ll be like three blogs put up at one time. Any who! On Saturday morning we left Las Vegas at 8am. There was 1 person running for the bus but he made it…

Day 10 – Las Vegas

Yesterday my room mate and I woke up to our hotel radio alarm going off at 4am. Brooke had to literally pull it out from the wall because it was hard to figure out how to turn it off in the dark haha. Then at 8.50am. We got a wake up phone call from an…

Day 9 – Las Vegas

So i’m going to be writing 3 separate blog posts today as I haven’t updated in the last 3 days (including today) I guess that’s what happens in Vegas! I go out and party and meet people and then have no time to update! Thursday 20th August 2015 I was up nice and early Thursday morning!…

Day 8 -Los Angeles (Contiki)

This is the first night I’m sleeping in a nice proper double bed with crisp white sheets tucked in nice and tight, a duvet and four pillows. I’m sleeping on make-up free pillowcases and I don’t feel I have to use my own pillowcase I brought from home. If you hadn’t guessed it, I’m staying at…

Day 7 – Los Angeles

Tonight is my last night in my hostel before I stay at a Hotel tomorrow night getting ready to start my contiki! I woke up this morning bright and early and joined in on breakfast for the very first time. There was unfortunately no bagels but they did have a selection of porridge and do-it-yourself…
